Senior outside hitter Kayla Neto was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week. Neto has exemplified consistency throughout the women’s volleyball season, but had a particularly strong weekend, leading the Titans over two games this weekend.
Neto averaged 4.30 kills, 3.70 digs and 1.10 blocks per set and swung at a clip of .250 (43-11-128).
On Friday, she tallied 16 kills, 21 digs and seven blocks against the University of the Pacific Tigers. She may have netted her seventh double-double of the season, but it came with a tough loss in five sets to the Tigers.
However, Neto led the Titans to a bounce back victory against the UC Davis Aggies on Saturday. This broke the Titans’ six game losing streak.
She racked up a season-high 27 kills, 16 blocks, four blocks and one service ace. Her effort against the Aggies resulted in her eighth double-double of the season.
Neto also had a clip of .253 (27-8-75) for the match and totaled 12 kills in the final two games.
This was the third time Neto has been awarded this honor in her career. She was named Big West Conference Player of the Week twice during her freshman season in 2009.
